- O/IR System

At the start of each decade, the National Academies organize a community-wide activity to recommend priorities in facility development for the next ten years. Typically, within these decadal surveys, one panel focuses on ground-based OIR development. These reports provide strategic guidance to NOAO’s program and planning.
